BJ Timoner has been hoofing it across the country to raise money for the fight against pancreatic cancer. As of Feb. 1, he’d gone about 648 miles and raised $13,500 for The Lustgarten Foundation. All of the proceeds go directly to the foundation for research, Timoner assures on his website.

His father died after a battle with pancreatic cancer when he was 5 years old. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cancer killer in America.

He will be at the corner of Gibson and Broadway today at 3 p.m., and he invites people to join him for a walk into Downtown. “Make signs! Bring food! Be merry!” he writes. He’s started his journey in San Diego on Christmas and hopes to reach Bethpage, N.Y., where the foundation resides. He’d like to raise $100,000.
